Mets Introduce New Bullpen

The Mets introduced Francisco Rodriguez to the New York media yesterday and J.J. Putz today. Rodriguez was the premier free agent of this offseason and a very important signing. But what could be more more important is Putz and how he adjusts to being a setup man as opposed to the closer he was in Seattle. The acquisition of Putz is a chancy one as he will have to (a) change his mindset to that of a setup man (a job he has held before) and (b) keep his head on the prize of winning games as opposed to getting somber about being in a non closer role. At today’s press conference he said the right things to allay these fears but you never know what can happen in the course of a 162 game season. Stay tuned.
